The Carson Valley Inn fall 2013 Concert Series kicks off with the return of The Lettermen on Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 22 and 23. The Lettermen usually appear at large concert halls and arenas but you’ll see them up-close during these two concerts in the Valley Ballroom at the Carson Valley Inn.
Stew Stewart, entertainment director for the Carson Valley Inn, said, “The Letterman played to large crowds when they were here at the CVI for three shows in May of 2012. They had a good time, our audiences loved them and said ‘bring ’em back again’ … so back they come. I’ve known these gentlemen for a long time and can guarantee lots of nostalgia, smiles and good feelings … like the old days.”
The Lettermen were signed to Capitol records in the summer of 1961 and their hits have been numerous including “Goin’ Out Of My Head,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” “Hurt So Bad,” “Theme From A Summer Place,” “The Way You Look Tonight,” “When I Fall In Love,” “Graduation Day,” “Shangri-La” and many more that have shaped the nostalgia years of many a baby boomer.
Among 32 consecutive albums which charted in the Top 100 in the United States, four were certified gold.
Founding member Tony Butala is proud of the fact his group has been part of Americana for 50 years. Butala promises, “as long as there is a Lettermen group, they will be singing good, quality and positive harmony music that the whole family can enjoy.”
Tickets for The Lettermen are $29.99 for either of the shows.
